Thanks iX for your comment, I appreciate it.
Try it for sure. Crimped heads do seem to center easier. But from my experience all heads work on DW toms. I have owned 4 dw kits, so when my friend had a problem I knew it was some sort of issue. We made sure the bearing edges where nice and clean but the drum wouldn't tune with a nice smooth round tone. The tiniest fractions can throw off the drum. The kit at the time was 4 years old. He sent it to DW and got it back in 3 weeks.Crazy right?! They didn't charge him for return shipping, and they put new heads on it. They didn't explain what they did, it just came back tuning true.
